Psychic medium and forklift operator cycle for charities

A DYNAMIC duo will be piling on the pedal power for three challenging charity cycle rides this year.

Psychic medium Stewart Keeys and forklift operator Spencer Phillips will be raising money for the British Heart Foundation and St Michael’s Hospice, in Aldermaston Road.

The pair, both fathers-of-two, will take on the London to Reading ride on March 24, the London to Brighton ride in June and the Basingstoke Big Wheel.

Spencer, of Greenwood Drive, said: “I’ve known Stewart for many years and we were both keen to take part and raise some money for charity.

“We have been training, but maybe not as much as we should have been. At the moment, we are just trying to raise as much money as possible.

“I’ve raised around £150 so far and Stewart has raised more than £100.

“We will be donating all the money from the first two rides to the British Heart Foundation and money from the last ride – the Big Wheel event – to St Michael’s Hospice.”

The 40-year-old is taking on the charity rides in memory of his grandmother, who passed away last November.

Stewart, 37, from Beggarwood, Basingstoke, often performs in Central Studio, Queen Mary's College, and has done readings for several celebrities.

If Stewart Keeys is truly psychic he should predict this weeks Euromillions numbers and donate an additional £20m to these worthy charities.

I predict that theKman will post a comment making fun of psychic powers.

The asterisks are not mine. The Gazette censors have a heavy hand - the word I used begins with 'd', ends with 'n' and rhymes with 'cam'. Hardly cause for an expletive deleted. Or perhaps they are trying to make my comment sound more controversial and offensive - I don't know, but perhaps Stewart Keeys does.

Maybe we should just be grateful that two guys are doing such a great thing for charity! No sarcastic comments needed!

You are right that these guys are doing a great job for charitable causes. However, in view of the overwhelming evidence that there is no such thing as psychic powers, anyone who claims to be a psychic medium is asking for a bit of leg pulling. I notice that The Gazette says that he often 'performs' at Central Studio, which suggests an act rather than a science based procedure.
Good luck to him and I am sure the coverage wont do his career any harm.

So called "psychics" are rarely even deceiving themselves. They "perform" cold readings and pretend to know/see something they do not.

If both parties understand its for fun (and free of charge) that's one thing. If you charge for this service and claim it to be real, its basically fraud. Unfortunately there are sufficient simpletons around to keep these people in business.

As for taking on charity challenges, I'm not criticizing. However that some of us do so without needing to call the Gazette to get free publicity.

Good luck to the both of them.

& good luck to the many other people from Basingstoke who will be taking part, without trying to gain self publicity out of it.

Stewart Keeys is certainly not a 'Fraud'!
He certainly doesn't pretend to see things

If you choose to not believe in the spirit world then that's your choice but its out of order to label someone you don't even know or ever to have met?
I feel sorry for you that you are so narrow minded to assume that there is nothing beyond your time on this earth in your physical body.

Is it that you've had a bad experience with a medium in the past and now you label them all as frauds??

The Basingstoke Gazette is constantly used for free advertising and self promotion, who cares? At least these 2 are doing something worthwhile and for a good cause.

"Stewart Keeys is certainly not a 'Fraud'!"

>>Prove it

"He certainly doesn't pretend to see things"

>>Hes either lying or delusional

"If you choose to not believe in the spirit world then that's your choice but its out of order to label someone you don't even know or ever to have met?"

>>Is that a question? It ends in a "?". Its not only my choice, but its based on reasoned thought and evidence based science.

I feel sorry for you that you are so narrow minded to assume that there is nothing beyond your time on this earth in your physical body.

>>I feel sorry for you that you need to seek comfort in the paranormal, especially since it has been disproven time and time again.

Is it that you've had a bad experience with a medium in the past and now you label them all as frauds??

>>No. I am able to engage in critical thinking, examine the evidence and conclude them to be frauds.

>>I dare Keeys to prove it by passing the Randi $1,000,000 paranormal challenge. Actually, any scientific controlled test where positive results (proof of paranormal powers) are mutually agreed beforehand.

I regard psychic mediums in much the same way as I regard religions - mostly harmless. If they bring comfort to anyone that is fine with me. Where I do take issue is when they exploit vulnerable people, make outrageous claims or impose unreasonsable conditions on the way people lead their lives.
I wish Stuart and Spencer good luck in their charity rides. Only Stuart knows how well they will do!
